INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle has gained 30 pounds in prison, according to celebrity gossip magazine inTouch Weekly.

Citing an unnamed "prison insider," inTouch says Fogle, who rose to fame due to his massive weight loss -- attributed partly to a Subway diet -- has also been targeted by other inmates with threats of violence.

Fogle was sentenced in November 2015 to more than 15 years in prison for possession of child pornography and traveling across state lines to have sex with minors. He was moved to the Englewood Federal Correctional Institution in Littleton, Colorado, to be closer to a sex therapy program he began prior to incarceration.

Fogle's attorneys have appealed his sentence, arguing Judge Tanya Walton Pratt should have honored the 5-12 year range he agreed to in his plea deal.

Russell Taylor, Fogle's longtime friend and employee, was sentenced in December to 27 years in prison for allegedly creating and funneling child pornography to his former employer.
